What is ecotherapy and how does it affect us?
When I'm having a bad day or if it is just one of those days, I use ecotherapy; healing through a connection with the earth and nature which means to heal mind and body. I know there are other types of words to describe this but ecotherapy has a nice ring to it which I like.
It has been said that anxiety and stress are reduced with some green therapy. Also mood and self-esteem are lifted up as well and symptoms of having depression of all kinds are also lowered.
One thing I have changed is that I'm spending more time outside going on road trips to explore more.
Going out for some fresh air to clear your head is all part of healing and what nature and outdoors can do.
When you're in a natural area or surrounding like the woods for example, spend time being mindful of using your senses. Smell the fresh cut grass, the flowers or hear the trees swaying from side to side. Listen to the sound of the background noises being made; birds chirping. Be mindful of the sense of touch, the breeze going against your skin, the texture of the petals of the flowers and leaves.
